YMMV: Aqua Teen Hunger Force

  • Base Breaker:
  • Crazy Awesome: Dr. Weird, with heavy emphasis on "crazy".
  • Crosses the Line Twice: There are few episodes that don't cross the line a few times.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: It has its own Page for it. Being an 11 minute show, this alone should count as one.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Subverted constantly almost every episode.
    Carl: There's something I need to say, ya know. Ever since my son was...never conceived because I never had consensual sex without money involved, I always sorta looked at you as...well, kind've a thing that I could, ya know, live next to in accordance with state law.
    Meatwad: Oh, that's sweet. You're trying to say that you love me!
    Carl: Eh eh eh, let's not get ahead of ourselves here - (puts on Super Bowl glove) WHO ARE YOU TAKIN' TO THAT FRIGGIN SUPERBOWL!
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Meatwad's solo in the Movie. Doubles as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment but damn is it awesome.
    • Also, the song "Cut Your Tongue Out With A Linoleum Knife," also in the movie, performed by none other than Mastodon.
      • "I'll bite your torso and give you a disease!!"
    • "Meatwad get da money, see..."
    • Can't forget Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary - a prog-metal "alternative" to "Happy Birthday To You," performed by Zakk Wylde and a Geddy Lee sound-alike.
    • The ending theme to Patrol Squad definitely qualifies. Listen to that badass guitar!
    • It's time for Aqua TV Show Show. Aqua TV Show Show. Aqua TV Show Show... (Coincidentally the first time the characters actually sing along with the theme).
    • Aqua Teen Hunger Force Forever, going out on a high note. The characters even sing the entirety of the song!
  • Ear Worm
    • "I Like Your Booty (But I'm Not Gay)," from the movie.
    • An in-universe example could be MC Pee Pants' "I Need Candy". Even Carl wound up liking it. This was, of course, the plan.
    • Cuz we are the Aqua Teens! Make the homies say HO and the girlies wanna scream!
    • "Party Party Party," of course!!
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future!
    • Jiggle Billy, to the point where his face has reached Memetic Mutation status.
    • Handbanana.
  • Faux Symbolism:
    Meatwad: I'm gonna name you Jesus...Ezekiel...Jesus. And that's from the Bible.
    • And again when everyone sees Jesus Gee whiz on the gun shop billboard. But it turned out to just be Ted Nugent.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The Boston Bomb Scare in 2007: laugh out loud funny; in 2013, when bombs actually did go off during the Boston marathon, now the 2007 incident is cringe-inducing.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Right when it was announced there were no plans to end the series, it's announced months later it's next season is the last season.
  • Ho Yay: Shake, to Frylock.
    "Why don't you help me SUCK IT? (beat) ...Wait a minute, that backfired."
  • Jerkass Woobie: Sure, Carl's rude, obnoxious, and hygienically-challenged, but the sheer amount of shit his neighbors have put him through kinda makes one feel sorry for him.
  • Love It or Hate It
  • Memetic Molester: Handbanana.
    • Tonight... YOU...
  • GENTLEMEN, BEHOLD!!! THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF MEMETIC MUTATION, ISN'T IT, STEVE?
    • WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE?!
    • There has also been popularity in photoshopping or drawing Carl's face and body into anime characters, as evidenced here, here and here.
    • "I get it. It ain't making me laugh, but I get it."
    • "Truly, they were a (insert series title here)."
    • ARISE CHICKUN!
  • Nightmare Fuel: Wong Burger Employees might qualify.
    • Santa Claus getting his skin burned off, not dying, and getting his skin replaced by soccer balls.
    • Dr. Wong Burger in "The Creature from the Plaque Lagoon".
    • The Aqua Something You Know Whatever opening is DERANGED.
    • I'M IN YOUR HOUSE.
      • Actually, the whole episode "The Cloning" was scary as hell.
    • The ending of "The Shaving".
    • Fry Legs. First we see Frylock trying to impress a girl with a mecha-like contraption which walks in a really off-putting way. Then, he starts stalking her. Then he kills her boyfriend when he tells him to back off...and wears his mutilated corpse as a suit. Of course, it doesn't fit well. (Pleasant dreams!)
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: The Movie will always be more remembered for its Viral Marketing campaign that caused the Boston Bomb Scare.
  • Rewatch Bonus: All the numerous hints at Frylock being a lesbian trapped in a man's body as a box of fries become a lot more noticeable once you've seen The Movie.
  • Seasonal Rot - Episodes from season 4 and beyond for the most part haven't been well-received by fans.
    • Alternatively, many think that the show got even worse with each rename.
  • Ugly Cute: Meatwad.
  • Uncanny Valley: Ever wonder what a cup, box of fries, and meatball would look like in Real Life if they each had human faces? The official poster for the film clears this up.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?
  • The Woobie: Meatwad and Frylock (most of the time)
